2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, & Wrap Around Lanai with Spectacular Ocean Views
Our spacious, ocean view condo is only steps from Kepuhi Beach. Our condo feels more like a beach home than a condo with its generous living space, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, loft, and wrap-around lanai. The condo is a lovely space for two people who just want a little extra room. The condo is also large enough to accommodate up to 6 people with ample room to relax. Beautiful French doors open the entire downstairs up to a 500 sq. ft. screened lanai - the ultimate space for dining or just basking in the breeze and enjoying the spectacular views of Kaiaka Rock. This Paniolo Hale style condo makes optimal use of the panoramic lanai views with an open air floor plan. The condo has a fully equipped kitchen including a dish washer, refrigerator, ice-maker, built-in filtered water faucet at the sink for drinking water, oven, stove, microwave, coffee maker, blender, etc. The condo is also equipped with a full-size washer and dryer for your convenience.
Wake up every morning on a comfortable King size bed to the gentle sea breeze through the open French doors. Breathe in the fresh ocean air and listen as Mother Nature pounds her waves onto the Kepuhi Beach. The downstairs bedroom has an adjoining full bathroom making for a convenient and comfortable stay. You’ll also find a comfortable Queen size bed upstairs with amazing ocean and garden views. A full-size bathroom is also located directly adjacent to the upstairs bedroom. Our charming condo is nicely furnished with a dining table, living room seating area and an extra pull out double sofa bed.
Paniolo Hale offers a beautiful pool & BBQ area for your enjoyment. Take a short walk North to Make Horse Beach, or venture only minutes south to Papohaku Beach, the longest white sand beach in Hawaii, where sometimes the only people on the beach are you.
Molokai is known as 'The Friendly Isle.' It is also considered the most Hawaiian island. Literally step back in time 50 years. You will not find traffic lights, elevators, malls, glitz, or night life here. If you're looking for a rural place for relaxation, snorkeling, beautiful ocean views, quiet beaches, and old Hawaii, you'll find it at our condo. Some say 'Only on Molokai', we say 'Always on Molokai’. Come visit and find out why.

About Dave Dearborn
Michelle and I are both California natives. Growing up near the coast, we developed an appreciation of outdoor adventures, and most of all, a love for the ocean. We still reside in the Bay Area, and always look forward to our trips to Hawaii. We both have full-time careers, but still make time to enjoy our four children, a glass of good wine on the porch in the evenings, and seeking out new experiences.

Why Dave Dearborn chose Maunaloa
Paniolo Hale Resort is considered the premier condominium resort on the island of Molokai, and not without good reason. Known as 'the shadiest place on west Molokai', the beautifully landscaped grounds are shaded by a canopy of several age old Hawaiian trees. The paniolo hale (translates as cowboy house) style makes optimum use of panoramic lanai views and open air floor plan. Our unit has a wrap around screened-in lanai that offers a wonderful ocean view. Kepuhi beach is a 2 minute walk from your door. Available for guests at Paniolo Hale are a beautiful swimming pool and an outdoor barbeque area. The pool is inlaid with thousands of ocean blue colored tiles, and include tile designs of dolphins, sea turtles and tropical fish. The barbeque area has two stainless steel gas grills set in a stone foundation and includes picnic tables. A great place to meet some of the guests, folks can be found here at all hours of the evening putting the final touches on their day's catch or showcasing their favorite BBQ recipe. The west side of Molokai is paradise. If you like to walk or swim, or just enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean, you'll be at home.

This condo did not disappoint. Clean, appliances were like new, great location and we all had private space. My friends used the downstairs bedroom and bath and I used the upstairs bedroom and bath. Perfect. About a 15 minute drive from the airport. The drive to town was 25 to 30 minutes depending on traffic (just kidding, there is no traffic, really, none). The grounds were clean as was the entire island. Sunset with the "neighbors" was fun every night and the walking trails in the old golf course was just the best. The BBQ area is somewhat of a gathering area in the evenings, we enjoyed meeting folks there too. We were able to find all we needed at Friendly market in town and a few things at the general store at Maunaloa just up the road. Be aware that the grocery stores are closed on Sunday so plan accordingly. To say Molokai is the "Friendly Island" is a understatement. Everyone we encountered were so friendly. If you have a chance try the "tomato jam hamburger" at Paddlers restaurant, so good. When returning to Hawaii will only return to Molokai and hopefully this condo if it's available. Like the saying goes, not the easiest island to get to but the hardest to leave. So true.
Nice comfortable accomodations
We spent a week in E2 in early March. Unit is well equipped (maybe a little too well equipped-no empty cupboards to store food). Everything worked. Enjoyed our stay.
Perfect Vacation Getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dave and Michelle's condo at Maunaloa, Molokai. The condo is bright, spacious, quiet, and beautifully furnished. There were plenty of dishes and pots and pans and the beds were super comfortable. It was very clean upon our arrival. There were condiments left in the fridge which is very helpful. Best of all is the large wrap around, screened in lanai or porch. We ate all our meals out there and watched the birds, moths, geckos and enjoyed the ocean view. The lanai is nestled in among the tropical trees and is a lovely place to sit and read a book. The pool is very well maintained and secluded in the trees away from the wind. We took our beach chairs down to the ocean every night around 5:30 to watch the sunset. It is a very short 2 minute walk out the condo door, where we met other vacationers. The barbecue is very close to the condo. We used it most nights. We've been to Molokai two other times and the west end is by far our favorite. It is a place where we go to relax and explore. It is not fast paced like Maui. At most you will see 6 other people on the beaches. We also love the ocean view trails on the old golf course within easy access of the condo. We walked them every morning and saw wild turkeys and deer - and a few other walkers! The drive into town is about half an hour. You will find everything you need there. The Saturday market is a must! We ate out at the new restaurant at the Molokai Hotel and the food was fantastic. I can't say enough about the beauty of Molokai. We had a great vacation and would definitely rent this lovely condo again.

We are spoiled rotten by this beautiful home
This is our second stay at Paniolo Hale E2. The unit is wonderful everything you could possible need is there. The Lanai is so wonderful its hard to leave. The hiking and even just gentle walks are restful. We are already booked for our 3rd visit next January. We love the space and Dave is helpful in anything you need. Since it is so well managed we never had a need to call or contact Dave. The sunsets are beautiful. There is a store in mauna loa not far from the house and they really have a great selection. We always eat in so cant speak to the restaurants and bars in town. The shopping in town is so much fun to buy original artists clothing and art work. We never get enough of talking story and the pace ie slow fits us perfect. Thank you Dave for another great vacation.
Best complex and location on the island.
These townhomes are really the best occomodation on the island. They are all well cared for unlike 2 other condo complexes just up the road. I really liked the open air feeling with the screened in Lanai that wraps around the ground floor. All the appliances worked well —washer/dryer looked brand new. The ceiling fans worked great, not old and noisy. Internet held it’s own, tv had good reception. We cooked every dinner in. Misaki’s and Friendlys are the only two full grocery stores and hit them both because they have slightly different produce. They get freight on Mon/Thurs. Do the hike down/book the tour to Kalaupapa (leper colony). It was beautiful and like no where else in the world. We are quite taken by Molokai but it took us about 2 days to ‘get’ it. Yes, remote is the Paniolo Hale, about 20 minutes West. We were like, holy crap, you weren’t kidding, the town looks 80 years old, the roads are all single lane. Once you see the beaches within walking distance of the townhome and see a couple of monk seals napping, multiple sunsets, your done. We will definitely be back and definitely stay here again.
One of the best kept secrets if you are looking for a relaxing getaway-both the island and this particular unit! Open the doors and let the beautiful breeze come through, relax inside or on the linai on comfortable furniture. The open floor plan allows you to be a part of everything even when you are in the kitchen. The beds are very comfortable and you can easily have up to 7 people here. Dave and Michelle are wonderful and very responsive to your needs. We’d come back here again!
